"The picturesque bay of the Andaman Sea lies beneath us at the West coast of Thailand. Slowly the sun rises from the gently purling waves and paints the entire scenery in an atmospheric light. The scent of jasmine blossoms eliminates any remaining feelings of stress or gloom. This sense of complete relaxation, calm and serenity must Adrian Zecha also have felt when he came here first to found his first Amanresort, Amanpuri (‘peaceful place’) on this green peninsula of Phuket."
"Amidst the hills of the former coconut plantation architect Ed Tuttle has created a secluded small paradise where a timeless elegant design and modern luxury harmonize with the traditional architectural style of Thailand."
"A special highlight are Amanpuri’s Amancruises. In the early morning we start with the 27 metres yacht ‘Maha Bhetra’ to our full-day cruise to the small islets and bays of Phang Nga and Krabi. … Besides the luxurious swimming vessel we are very impressed by the dreamlike setting of the sea. The attentive crew caters for any needs and fulfils our wishes almost before we have verbalized them, and we are spoiled with citrus-scented towels, cold drinks and Thai specialities."Vogue, Germanyon Amanpuri, April 2013
